Forum: ourmedia Subject: THAT'S IT! I've had enough...

I know this will probably bring down a lot of stuff on myself. The last time I tried to put in my two cents I underwent a personal attack that honestly really upset me. The person leading the attack even went as far as creating a login that looked exactly like mine and posted things on the forums as if they were actually me, including a link to a picture of me that they most likely got from another website that I frequent. With that being said, after catching up on what has been going on around here with NC and TT, I cannot just stand by and be silent anymore.

NoiseCollector talks about the personal attacks on his family. Well, to me family does not always consist of blood. I consider NC to be part of my family. Without him I would not be sitting where I am today writing this. It’s been almost 2 years since he came back into my life and helped me find my Path to Sunshine (oh, God that’s corny). But it is true. Without him I would not have found many of the people I have refound in the last 2 years. Without him I would not have had the inspiration to create some of the things I have. And without him I would have NEVER regained that little bit of happiness and self confidence that I needed to get out of a bad situation.

Telephone Toughguy may be harsh at times but I do not blame him after what he has been through. What you people see on here is a man, in a tragic situation, expressing himself the best way he knows how. It may not always be a good way or the right way, but I thought in this country we had the right to express ourselves. I cannot even count the number of times this extraordinary man has helped me through some tough times just by making me laugh. If he bothers you, then don’t read his posts or do what I do and take him with a grain of salt.

The one thing that bothers me the most is the willingness of everyone to post other people’s personal information, including a moderator. What is wrong with this picture? I joined archive to help support some friends in making the music that they love to make. Yes, sometimes one or two of those friends should keep their mouth shut, but again…freedom of expression. This whole thing actually reminds me of a discussion I was having here at home just yesterday. I expressed my opinion on some lyrics that I didn’t like, the other half got offensive. I pointed out that I am human and have a right to my own opinions. He pointed out that he is human too and has the right to have his opinions on my opinions. And as you can see, the two of us could have gone back and forth forever on this.

I guess what I am trying to say is…..Let’s stop these personal attacks on one another. Let’s let NC get back to making the music that gives him a little bit of joy in his life. Let’s let TT get out his frustrations by being able to express himself. . Ignore them if you don’t like them. Don’t click on their posts if you don’t like them. If you personally do not like the things either of these two men write, then take NC’s advice and Don’t Feed the Trolls.
